Compact surveillance radar provides rapid relief for power grid perimeter security

MINNEAPOLIS— DistribuTECH—January 31, 2017—SpotterRF, the leader in low cost compact surveillance radar (CSR), today announced its newly upgraded C20D and C40D radar models. Both models provide enhanced technology to streamline installation and integration for the company’s strategic integrator partners. In partner news, SpotterRF and integrator IndustrialENET announced availability of the new IE-PNL-RADAR/CAM-120 interface panel designed for rapid deployment, uninterruptable power, and more advanced connectivity.

“Both the Spotter C20D and C40D models result from our constant quest for advancing perimeter security for partners and customers,“ states Logan Harris, SpotterRF CEO. “The new interface panel developed by IndustrialENET allows clients to connect quickly and better protect the Spotters from surges on power and communication lines during inclement weather.”

The new panel builds on last year’s announced plans to integrate IndustrialENET technology and SpotterRF radar with rugged Bosch MIC cameras to protect bridges, tunnels and electrical substations in harsh conditions. The panel provides:

  • Redundant power supplies
  • 24VAC supply standard
  • Extra circuit breakers on 24VDC and 24VAC bus
  • Phoenix contact Managed Ethernet switch
  • Extended temperature ratings (all industrial rated) components
  • Surge protection on Cat5 for Power Over Ethernet (POE) and high POE to camera(s)
  • UL panel rating
  • Ethernet Connectors to power up to 4 SpotterRF radars
  • Engineered drawings with panel

“This new panel meets our high standard for providing critical system networking with high availability, video surveillance,” states Jon Amack, Director of Business Development for IndustrialENET. “Using Phoenix Contact’s world class manufacturing resources, we can offer the highest standard of protection for SpotterRF solutions at very competitive prices. We are very pleased to offer this plug-and-play solution with SpotterRF to better protect critical infrastructure like our nation’s electric grid and bridges.”

The upgraded Spotter C20D and C40D radars include added short circuit, over-voltage, and reverse voltage protection to better streamline setup and installation. Details Here
